Cool, I hadn't heard of it before.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Thanks Silvester, somebody will chastise me for it, but that's typical fluff - too glib, too slick and just plain predictable. But then Joe Blow on the street will think it's brilliant, and its probably meant for them anyway.

Why do we have this need to neatly package everything into sound bites, 5sec cue cards and punchlines? Wait, I think its because we don't have the patience to research anything ourselves anything, we rather be fed other peoples opinions and ideas. Like I said, sorry if I sound disgusted.

It's a movie...

of course it is directed at a wide audience, that is how movies fulfill their primary purpose...to make money. The fact that it is packaged or fluff or predictible is another story. I'd go see it.

Movie

Doesn't look like it will win an Oscar, but might be good. Don't know if a movie about trading that is to realistic will be very entertaining.

No only that, they (Wall St) will tell you they really want to save the people. Remember the movie about the financial collapsed? How the bankers want to save the world.

Looks interesting, and can't be worse than Wall Street 2.
